Eternal love is Thine, God!
Oh! let me not in error stray.
But chasten with a gentle rod,
And lead me back to virtue’s way.
With penitential tears I weep,
Turn not away, in wrath, Thy face;
Awake my soul from sinful sleep,
And purify it by Thy grace.
Thou, who canst heal the broken heart,
Will hear the suppliant’s prayer;
Thy truth, Thy goodness, oh! impart:
Almighty, take me to Thy care!
